Sweet Sherry Wins Listed Crockett Stakes
At Moonee Valley in Melbourne, Eliza Park's multiple Gr1-winning sire Bel Esprit (Royal Academy-Bespoken, by Vain) added a black-type success when 3YO filly Sweet Sherry (Bel Esprit-Amoroso, by Revoque) scored by 0.2 length for trainers Leon & Troy Corstens in the $120,000 Listed Crockett Stakes (1200m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Prompt Response (Beneteau-Prompt, by Exceed and Excel) & Overstep (Exceed and Excel-Elusive Desire, by Elusive Quality). A $260,000 yearling consigned by Swettenham Stud at the 2015 Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale, Sweet Sherry improved her record to 3 wins (including the Listed VRC Maribyrnong Trial Stakes ) and 1 placing (the Listed MVRC Atlantic Jewel Stakes) from 8 starts for $318,000.
